Come to Play: Seunggi, Lee Sun Hee, Jung Yup [ENG, Ep 2]
Omg, after being Come to Play obsessed for the past week, I liked Part 2 just as much, maybe even more than last week’s Part 1. The Part 2 episode (aired May 2) had all sorts of goodies, including the 3 misconceptions women have about Seunggi. (that is, according to Seunggi!) Not surprisingly, Yoona as Seunggi’s ideal girl and the 3 female celebs that have Seunggi’s phone number is getting all the buzz…
Come to Play, LSG cuts [ENG-subbed] are forthcoming.
Meanwhile, highlights from Come to Play part 2…
#3 misconception women have~ that Seunggi doesn’t have a cellphone. MC Yoo asked Seunggi if there were any female celebs that had Seunggi’s number.
The 3 lucky girls with Seunggi’s number?
Shin Min Ah, Han Hyo Joo, Moon Chae Won.
#2 misconception women have~ that he seems like he wouldn’t drink. He acknowledges his upstanding image as probably the reason but emphatically states that he too likes to drink with friends and doesn’t get why everyone is shocked to know that he does drink! Hodong being the ultimate one!
He says he tends to forget what’s happened when he’s drunk and that he didn’t even remember singing the same 2 songs 20 times when they got together (guys only!) for a friend’s birthday! He only found out when he woke up to a sore throat and friends filling him in about the night before! Now I can see why Seunggi chooses mainly to chill with his close school guy friends! Um, major scandal potential otherwise!
#1 misconception women have~ that he’s a difficult guy to approach. He couldn’t understand why. The others say it’s because of his upstanding image. Hong Kyung Min adds that women want to have a son just like Seunggi, but don’t necessarily think “I want to marry him” at first. Which of course, does not help Seunggi’s case!
(Ok, Hong Kyung Min is a lot older so I’d say the younger females definitely are not looking at Seunggi as son material! Definitely boyfriend potential!)
He then compares Seunggi to a pagoda at a temple and says people feel Seunggi is sort of untouchable, like they have to protect him! An uber compliment, but still no use for Seunggi who’s wanting girls to approach him! So the other guys suggest Seunggi transform (just slightly!) into a bad guy! (not easy for him!)
Please return Hwan!~~~
Introducing Lee Seung Gi as Sun Woo Hwan, Brilliant Legacy
Also, there was a lot of SBS My Girlfriend is a Gumiho love on the MBC set of Come to Play. (Maybe to make up for dragging Seunggi’s name in the news cycle for several days about casting rumors for the MBC’s new Hong Sisters drama, which by the way I’m sort of boycotting!)
Seunggi also told a story about how Jung Yup was way easier on Shin Min Ah for her song on the drama OST. Jung Yup composed the song for “Sha La La.” And even though Jung Yup is well-known to be detail oriented and Seunggi and others had to record for like 4 hours, Min Ah was given the thumbs up after like 1 hour, like 1 take! Jung Yup was like really, it was only an hour? He didn’t notice time had passed! The others teased him that it was more about him liking Min Ah than her song!
And then of course the Yoona as his ideal girl thing. Looks like SNSD’s Yoona already has the all important Teacher Lee Sun Hee endorsement! Teacher first brings up Yoona and says she personally thinks Yoona is pretty and would ask Seunggi about it and he wouldn’t really say anything.
Seunggi said that he does think Yoona is pretty but doesn’t say much because it’s weird to talk with Teacher Sun Hee about that sort of thing. They ask who his ideal girl is, style-wise, and he picks Yoona.
Either Seunggi’s trying to be consistent with his original ideal girl choice from 2 years ago(!) or he really like the Yoona type of girl. I definitely think there’s some of both going on. Either way, Korean guys (and guys in general!) like girls to be sexy and alluring but also cute and innocent! Which is why I’ve said we Korean girls are always having to showcase both! Ha.
Hahahahaha. So cute.
Love when variety shows also use photoshop!

Seunggi’s ideal girl…
(Videos: Rapport2010, Images: Korean Press, dcLSG, As labeled)
Can I just say?~ Seunggi is so very smart. He gets to keep the numbers of three hot actresses in his smartphone, while warding off any talk of potential scandal with the excuse that all three were people he’s worked with! Also super safe choice to pick Yoona. She’s like the ideal girl for a bunch of guys, so no real scandal or issue taken. Brilliant!
I’m sure he likes them all, I mean Seunggi IS a guy after all! But I definitely get this feeling that Seunggi will marry a non-celeb in the future. Which is fine by me. If I can date and later get married, and since I won’t be marrying Seunggi(!), then he should be happy too! His REAL ideal girl is probably a mix of all 4 girls (plus a Kim Yuna)!
